    Yeah they're good cheap runabouts, I was looking at one before I got my car but the owner wouldn't let it go for less than 4k...

    Ended up buying this, which I have driven a total of 100 miles in 3 months as it's been in garage having extensive work done which is now finished, just waiting for the roads to dry out a bit before I let rip:

    Cheers. I got it for a fairly good price knowing it'd need a bit of work on the rust (they rust very easily). How

    Parts aint too expensive so long as you don't go to a BMW stealer.

    Also they are going up in value about £250every year, so rather than get some shitty Vaux-shit which will only ever depreciate I hope to reclaim back some of the fortune I've spent on it :rinsed:

    No idea mate Im not a mechanic, my mates garage is doing all the work on my motor.

    Get down the scrapyard and get the replacement wing & light yourself to save a few quid, you might even find one in the same colour if you're lucky. Then I'd guess about 3-4hrs labour to get it fixed.

    BoudiCat could probably give you a better idea I think she's a mechanic.
